Zed wonders if she knows anyone who reads her site (I’m paraphrasing badly I think), and I have to admit I do wonder the same. I do know that some real people (as in I’ve met or conversed with them outside of blogland) read and visit here:
Izb and Alex (who I work with), Rebecca (Alex’s wife), and… er… well that’s it for those who are ‘with-blog’. Add to the list Ann Marie (in NYC), Lynne (who I went to school with), Sally (who I worked with) and my family (Mum, Dad & Jennie (little sis) posted during my Blogathon stint, my sister-in-law Claire has said hello, and I think niece and nephew number one – Chris and Jo – have visited occasionally too).
Aside from them, I don’t really know you lot do I? I mean I’ve chatted with a few of you, swapped music recommendations, photos of dubious nature and so on, but even then it’s a little like reading your blogs, you only get so much of a person’s personality.
I’m not sure where I’m heading with this… I can’t make it down to London for the UK Bloggers Xmas bash, and don’t really have the time (ohh ok the get-up-and-go) to arrange a Scottish meet – especially after the one that Richard organised failed.
Although I think I have a solution for that one: hold two meets, one in Glasgow, one in Edinburgh…
One thing is certain though, despite not having met any of you in the flesh, I have learned a lot about you all, shared laughter and tears, highs and lows, and hope to do so for a fair wee while yet.
Wow, this kind of sneaked up on me… and would probably be better if posted at the end of the year, but why wait until then.
I’ve been blogging now for 3 ½ years and loved every minute of it.
So happy new year!!! … er… and thanks for visiting!… please come back soon…
